وَ ما خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَ الإِْنْسَ إِلاَّ لِيَعْبُدُونِ ﴾ )

“I did not create the jinn and humans except that they may worship Me.”

Ibadhah:  The word linguistically means:  obedience with submission, acts of worship. 

The well known 13th century Islamic scholar  Ibn Taymiyyah  defined 'ibadah as " encompassing everything that Allah loves and is pleased with - whether saying, or actions, inward and outward."  Ibada’at is actually derived from the word Abid.  Abid means Slave or servant.  So anything we do as a Muslim to please Allah is Ibaadah.

Some types of Ibadah

Ibadah of the mind      : Intention – niyyah. Remembrance of Allah.

Ibadah of the tongue  :  Zikr - Dua’s. Reciting Quran. Dawah work. Encouraging good forbidding evil.

Ibadah of the body      :  Salah.  Actions that please Allah. Fulfilling obligations due to family and society.  Fasting.  

Ibadah of the Health   :  Hajj.. Following the Sunnah.

Ibadah of the wealth   : Giving Zakah or sadaqah. Earning halal livelihood.
